Events / Re: AHA Conference

Just a few days away from the start of the 2013 National Homebrewers Conference in Philly!  We are all super psyched for this year's conference.  I hope all of you that are going are as excited as we are for what is almost assuredly going to be the largest single gathering of homebrewers ever.

We have heard some confusion from some of those registered for the "Full Conference Almost" package. This package does allow access to everything included with the Full Conference registration, with the exception of the Thursday seminars (all of which are repeated later in the week).  So it includes access to the HomebrewExpo, which opens at noon on Thursday, Pro-Brewers Night and the late-night Liberty Well Social Club. We have limited seminar space on Thursday (I wasn't anticipating 3400 attendees back when we were looking at this property in 2009/2010), so simply couldn't accommodate as many people as we are able to get in on Friday and Saturday.

Swing by the AHA booth at Club Night and let me know what you think of my Saison.

See ya in Philly!

Thanks Gary!  Bring it!

Beer Recipes / Re: Amber Ale Recipe- Input Please

Would like some input on an amber recipe I'm trying out. This is really my first all grain experiment outside of a kit, and I just kind of decided to wing it. Any suggestions/critiques are welcome. Thanks!

9lbs 2-Row Pale
1lb Crystal 40
1lb Biscuit
.5lb Dextrine

Mash @152f for 60 min

.5oz Columbus @60
.5oz Columbus @10
1oz Columbus Dry Hop

WLP060 w/starter recommended by Mr Malty

I like that recipe.  I agree with the comments on cutting back on the biscuit, but everything else is nice.  For an amber, you want some caramel flavor and 1 pd. of 40L is reasonable.  The dextrine will give it some body.  You could throw in a quarter or half pound of munich to give the base malt some additional flavor.  The mash temp is reasonable considering that yeast strain.  Go for it!
